Dos Brisas trail or carriage ride

Given the choice, I will always opt for a horseback riding vacation out on the trail, rather than arena riding. Nothing beats being on the back of a horse while riding on bridle paths surrounded by orchards, organic gardens and three fish-stocked ponds on the ranch.
“We have a lovely Visa a Vis Cabriolet carriage at Dos Brisas,” notes Barn Manager Val Darlington. “We drive around the property, passing the old barns, ponds and orchard. This is a very romantic experience. Snuggle up under our blankets while enjoying a glass of wine or steaming mug of hot chocolate.”
Additional ranch activities include sporting clay, tennis, organic gardening lessons, cooking or wine tasting classes, or grab some fishing poles and head to one of the lakes or settle into an Adirondack chair by the pond.
